Cristina's story

Cristina is 62 years old. She is a widow and her children already live independently. Her business is selling basic household goods from a sales location in Hurujara district. This loan is her first from the institution. She will use it to buy merchandise with which to stock her business. She will buy sweet treats and soft drinks.

Cristina is requesting this loan as she has a lot of demand for her products and would like to increase her sales. In order to do this, she needs to stock her business with merchandise. Cristina faces challenges in her business such as competition from stores in her area. She will use the profits that she makes to buy more merchandise so that she can continue growing her business. Her business goal is to continue making sales and to have a well-stocked store so that she can grow her business, improve her income and improve her family's quality of life.
